  • everybody.

  • Welcome back to flag slash fan Friday.

  • Hope you like the Papua New Guinea episode.

  • So as you know, it is the part where we talk about the things that didn't quite make it into the video.

  • For small, small mistake, it was actually Kun do drum.

  • Second, I wanted to talk a little bit more about hitting Mo to the other official language of Papua New Guinea.

  • It's kind of really only spoken in this south and in the capital area by Port.

  • Moore's Be one of the last surviving German Creoles in the world was made in Papua New Guinea, owns a deutsche.

  • It's only spoken by about 100 people, and most of them live in Australia and some of the ethno linguistic groups.

  • The people are completely separated by gender every single day, apart from a brief amount of time when the husband and wife get married and when their Children are born cargo cults During war times, many airplanes would drop off supplies and remote areas.

  • Many times, the people living there had never even had any contact with outsiders.

  • So when they see these huge loads of cargo coming from the sky, it kind of made them admonish and revere the gift givers from above to the point where it kind of became a religion and hence the cargo cults.

  • There's actually really interesting one in the island of Tanna for Vanuatu, but we'll save that for the vital Otto episode.

  • There was a section in the video where I talked about the controversies of the country.

  • I did ask you guys if there are any controversies and issues of the country you'd like me to highlight.

  • For one, Papa New Guinea does have a known, high recorded index of human rights abuses against the populist, specifically in the sexual assault category, mostly against women.

  • Often lack of access to courts and police means that reports are left unaddressed.

  • In addition, many people have complained about the government officials misappropriating public funds.

  • And another thing.

  • Pop winds are tired of being called cannibals.

  • Since in the past, many tribes were documented to have practiced the act.

  • Today it is illegal and claimed that cannibalism is eradicated from the country.

  • However, if we have to be completely honest and certain obscure, isolated tribes, it's not easy to be completely sure.

  • But they hope it is, and it probably is.

  • And yeah, other than that, they have one of the world's only few poisonous birds, so that's just about it.

  • Otherwise, we gotta talk about the flag.

  • So without further, do you Oh my gosh.

  • Papua New Guinea has so many people, groups and languages and customs and traditions and animals and blah blah blah.

  • It's very interesting country to research.

  • And speaking of animals, there's one on the flag.

  • The flag is split diagonally into black and red triangles.

  • In the hoist is the Southern Cross, the famous constellation found in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • In the further fly side, Araki, on a bird of Paradise, the national bird is silhouetted in yellow, red and black have long been traditional colors of many Papua New Guinean tribes.

  • The color can be found all over their traditional body pains, pottery masks, artifacts and so on.

  • Although the colors were also used in the former German Empire flag, which had colonized them prior to 1918 there's no correlation between the two and keep in mind.

  • Prior to this, they had various flags, according to each of the various powers that took over them in the north or south.

  • Remember that little skit we did in the history section under the British and Australians?

  • They had a few different territory flags.

  • Japan had a quick moment in World War two, where they kind of took over on the north side and most of the island's course.

  • We already mentioned the German's leading up to their independence from Australia.

  • There was actually a proposed flag that looked like this.

  • It never actually happened, though, when they competed at sports events.

  • Sometimes they would use this flag under the territory off Papua under Australia.

  • And yeah, that is just about it.

  • For flags now, the national emblem, the national emblem is pretty simple and illustrative of the images that symbolize the country as a whole.

  • On top, you find the national bird, the rocky on a bird of paradise as depicted on the flag.

  • But in all of its wonderful color and detailed glory, the birds perched on a traditional kun do drum, which is used intertribal e amongst many of the peoples and ethnic groups of Papua New Guinea.

  • They come in all different patterns and sizes, yet followed the same shape and format of an hourglass with a handle on the side.

  • Finally splicing the backside of the drum and protruding on the left and right is a traditional Papuan spear, the traditional weapon of choice for many people, groups throughout the country.

  • And keep in mind.

  • Sometimes the coat of arms can also have the words Papua New Guinea inscribed below the entire image.

  • Interesting to note that the Iraqi on a bird of paradise was also depicted on the coat of arms during the German colonization years.

  • What?

  • The Brits and the Aussies in the South were a little more boring.

  • We just used to crown to show that it was part of the Commonwealth and they used an acronym of letters or whatever.

  • Yeah, that's pretty much it for the symbolism of Papua New Guinea.

  • Now we go to jog your fan mail time.
